Security in development systems
We recommend that you implement all safety instructions of priority very high (1) and high (2) directly. On the other hand, you can implement medium (3) and low (4) security advisories via support packages, which you should also include regularly. If you are unable to insert a support package at the moment, SAP will also provide you with the priority 3 and 4 security advisories. For the evaluation of the security advisories, you should define a monthly security patch process.
We would like to point out that after defining and implementing a authorization object, you should no longer change the permission field list, as this will cause inconsistencies. Once you have determined that you want to add more fields to your check, assign your authorization object to the AAAA object class and create a new authorization object.
Assign SAP_NEW to Test
You will need to adapt the template to your organisation's circumstances, i.e., probably define the certificate filing depending on the naming convention for your users and adjust the certificate verification. This verification of certificates ensures that no existing certificates are added in the template and that only one certificate is entered to an e-mail address. This check is necessary because sending an encrypted e-mail is cancelled if more than one valid certificate to an e-mail address is found. You can map mass imports of the certificates via this customer-specific programme. In addition, you will also need to define a way to manage certificates in your organisation, i.e. how to transfer changes to certificates to the SAP system.
The SAP standard offers various ways to record and play on a massive scale. These tools are generally available for all operations in the SAP system, not just for role maintenance. Therefore, they are also more complex to operate, in order to be able to cover as flexibly as possible all possible application scenarios. eCATT is also no exception, so many users are still afraid to use it. But we can tell you from experience: After the second or third time, the creation of the test scripts is so quick that you'll wonder why you haven't always done it this way.
During go-live, the assignment of necessary authorizations is particularly time-critical. The "Shortcut for SAP systems" application provides functions for this purpose, so that the go-live does not get bogged down because of missing authorizations.
To store all the information on the subject of SAP - and others - in a knowledge database, Scribble Papers is suitable.
